Maryland has been granted $10 million in federal funding to address the opioid crisis.
The Baltimore Business Journal reports:
The grant is part of $485 million in funding being awarded by the Department of Health and Human Services to all 50 states and four U.S. territories. The funding piggybacks off $10 million the state received last year from DHHS to fight the opioid epidemic.
Of the grants, $2 million will be used to create a 24-hour crisis center in Baltimore City. The state is also using portions of the money for local Opioid Intervention Teams and public awareness campaign.
